Pearl of Wisdom

Narrating from Ja'far: 'Fatima (AS) came to Abu Bakr asking for her inheritance, and 'Abbas b. 'Abd al-Mutalib also asked for his inheritance and 'Ali (AS) came with them. Abu Bakr said, 'The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'We do not leave inheritance; whatever we leave is charity', so whoever the Prophet was responsible for in their livelihood, I am responsible for.' 'Ali (AS) said, 'Solomon inherited from David , and Zacharias said, ' who may inherit from me and inherit from the House of Jacob. Abu Bakr said, 'That is right, but by Allah you know the same as what I know.' Then 'Ali said, 'This is the Book of Allah talking. So they ['Ali, Fatima and 'Abbas] kept quiet and left.'

Answer: It is permissible to combine Zuhr and Asr prayers and to perform them separately as it is permissible in both manners.

Every prayer as 'awaal waqat' (starting time) and 'akhir waqat' (ending time). It is always better to perform the prayer during the starting time, rather at the end. Since the time of Asar prayer start soon after the start of the Zohr prayers, the Shias perform the Asar prayer during the 'awaal waqat' (starting time), rather than the ending time.

Performing any prayer during the starting time is more desirable than the later time, as the later time is kept for the people who cannot prayer during the beginning due to various factors.
